As previously confirmed, CDPR is also establishing a new study in Boston to work on the title, with a number of staff set to move to the US as production on the sequel ramps up.
The North American studio will consist of teams working from Boston and the team working from Vancouver, the project will also be supported by developers from Poland.
As for the total headcount required for such a production, I believe the best reference is Cyberpunk 2077, our most recent release and a good reference point when thinking about development headcount and future projects of this scale. I think it’s safe to assume that between 350 and 500 developers should be required.
In related news, Marcin Iwinski, the co-founder of CDPR, confirmed this week that he is stepping down in his role as joint-CEO of the company. In addition, the studio is also working on a brand new IP codenamed Hadar.
